The Door County Economic Development Corporation, municipalities, foundations, and privates businesses continue to work ideas to address the chronic shortage of housing in the area. The workgroup is working with a consulting firm to develop a countywide housing study which hopes to address affordable, workforce, and senior housing to meet the needs of the area. Workgroup member and Egg Harbor Village Administrator Ryan Heise says they are not sure how they got to this point, but now is the time for solutions to a problem not unique to Door County.
The DCEDC is hosting a public meeting at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor to discuss housing challenges in Door County from 5 to 7 p.m. on May 3. You can also tune into the discussion on the DCEDC Facebook page.
